ABC Challenge - P is for .......

......Pearls!


This week at the ABC challenge we would like you to add pearls to your project.
We have a wonderful prize up for grabs from the fabulous Whimsy Stamps who have this week provided images for all of us on the ABC design team to play with.

For my card I have used the Whimsy Stamps image "Knight Connor" which has been coloured using Copic markers.
The paper is from the Basic Grey Archaic collection. I've cut out a fleur de lys using a Sizzix die and used the negative to stencil over the paper using Peeled Paint distress ink. I liked the effect and didn't want to cover up too much of the paper so I tried to keep the card as simple as possible.
I've used scraps of paper from 7 Gypies to cut out the hinges on my Cricut and also to make the tabs which have the three pearls glued on to them.
The sentiment is from Autumn Leaves.

Please go and check out the brilliant work from the rest of the girls on the ABC design team.
